Alana Thompson and her redneckognizing family are back with a slew of holiday specials. First up? It's Halloween! If the group's time at Shhh! It's A Wig is any indication, we are in for a wild, wild ride. I have not been quiet in my love for all things Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, but last night was overkill. Don't get me wrong, I still love this family, but TLC needs to differentiate between thirty minutes of hilarious redneck reveling and an hour of dragging out poor Sugar Bear in a wheelchair. Although, how awesome was he with baby Kaitlyn?
Oh Lord, I don't even know what to say. Two minutes into the special we are treated to June napping haphazardly across her bed and Pumpkin emerging from the crawl space beneath the house (just how close does that train come to their home??) with some nastiness she's found. Pumpkin ties said nastiness to a 2×4 and dangles it over her mother's face. I can only imagine what the remaining fifty-eight minutes have in store. As for Chubbs, Chickadee, and Smoochie, they love Halloween for the sweets. As Alana so eloquently sings/raps, "Halloween is all about the treats…treatin' myself to candy!" She's practically autotuned!
Poor Sugar Bear is in a wheelchair due to a recent surgery, and Pumpkin wants to dress up Chickadee's baby as a cheese ball for Halloween. The baby is precious! June shares that Halloween is a special time for her family, given that the girls love to dress up (well, duh, they are a pageant fam!), and they love to eat candy. I'd say that's a fair assessment. The family is decorating the yard for Halloween, and I have never seen such an assortment of pumpkin inflatables. There's that darn train again…I'd make spotting the train a drinking game, but I fear that I wouldn't be able to make it through this recap! June and Sugar Bear gather up the girls to head to the pumpkin patch. I'm so happy to see they already have their Christmas lights up on their house. That should make preparation for the yuletide holiday special that much easier.
Mob Wives kicked off last night with its season 3 premiere (and it delivered the drama!). Some of the cast and their crew hit up Frames Bowling Lounge in NYC to celebrate.
Love Majewski, Ramona RizzoandKaren Gravano were among the cast on hand to party and throw some balls down the lane. Though I'm sure that last part was for photo purposes and nobody actually kept score…
Stay tuned as Lauren brings you the Mob Wives season 3 episode 1 recap later this morning!
Lea Black's son RJ was out doing good deeds in Miami this weekend. The proud mom took to Twitter to share that he wanted to help out the homeless by passing out burgers and hoped that others would follow his lead.
I'm sure we don't need to point out the obvious, but we will because that's how we do here at RT. Do you think this is in any way a little "message/dig" at a certain Real Housewives of Miami co-star? We all know that Alexia's son Peter was in hot water after punching a homeless man in the crotch. Or is it a complete coincidence?
Any which way – kudos for RJ and his big heart!
TELL US – IS LEA SENDING ANY SORT OF DIG AT ALEXIA OR IS IT ALL 100% INNOCENT?
RHOM fans know that despite some unfortunate plastic surgery, Mama Elsa tells it like it is. When she's not threatening drag queens, dancing in caftans, or having psychic visions, she's doling out some pretty down-to-earth advice. She's the Big Ang of Bravo.
MTV's BUCKWILD premiered Thursday night. Did you watch?
While it's safe to say SenatorJoe Manchin probably didn't host a viewing party, a decent amount of people couldn't resist the mudding, dump truck swimming, tire rolling, mattress slinging, and redneck sexy times. BUCKWILD pulled in 2.49 million viewers and a 1.4 rating over its back-to-back premieres.
BUCKWILD's Executive Producer Barry Poznicktweeted:
Comparing premieres, BUCKWILD outperformed Jersey Shore, which debuted to 1.375 million in 2009, by over one million viewers. Whether or not BUCKWILD becomes the ratings juggernaut that was Jersey Shore remains to be seen.
When they reached out to Adriana's team, they got this explanation from her publicist Lynn Brodsky about her marriage and why they pretended to only be engaged.
"Adriana did get divorced in 2003, but her and Roberto tried to work things out and had a common law marriage until 2006. After breaking it off she then met Frederic in 2008. On a romantic whim after dating briefly, Adriana and Frederic went to the clerk's office on their own with no friends and family, and were married. There was a discrepancy in the certificate – so instead of having the marriage fix [sic] or annulled, they decided to take a step back and hold off until they were truly ready. Adriana and Frederic are planning to have a beautiful (and proper) wedding this spring."
